Please do not try to push your wishlist bugs by setting important
severity.  According to the definition important is

     a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without
     rendering it completely unusable to everyone.

Just a new version which will not make its way to stable is by no
means important - not even valid as wishlist.  I will reset the
severity and also tag it wontfix - because we simply can not fix
this in Debian.

Please remind: Something that might be important for your day to
day work might have a really different importance for Debian as
a distribution.  In this scope it is important to keep a system
_stable_ which means = no new versions.  There is no reason why
any special package should make an exception.

Kind regards
